Anyone remember...

I guess computer games are like music... the younger generations just recycle the old songs and add more flashy stuff, like drums and whatever.

Now we have Marble Madness version Y2K13

This game is quite different from Marble Madness.

What DaFox said. + This isn't a 2013 game it's 2008.

That's like claiming Super Monkey Ball is a clone of Marble Blast Gold.
The marble rolling game is a whole genre.

It is more like Ballance
(the Wiki mentions Marble Madness)
I haven't played Ballance for a while, but my recollection was the control scheme on that was much more fluid. I have problems with the controls on Spectraball.

Yeah Ballance rocked!

I was thinking the first time I saw this and then played it how much it reminded me of Marble Madness on my Spectrum "back in the day". Glad I'm not the only one who noticed the similarities.

To all those who claim it's a clone of this-game or that-game it really reminds me of a few tabletop games from the 80's - namely Screwball Scramble or one of those labrynth games where you had two dials which adjusted the pitch of the table along the x-axis and y-axis.

I bought this for £0.87 just a few days ago and it was worth every single penny. The controls take a bit of getting used to but I am going to learn this game and then go for a speed run.

Remember playing this on the old Genesis. Good times.
